Left-handed Catchstitch | Video

Learn a southpaw method for this essential hand-stitch.

Most sewing instructions are written for right-handed stitchers. Lefties may find it confusing to reverse those instructions so they work for left-handed stitching. If you’ve struggled to visualize how to sew with your left hand, you’ll find help here. Watch to learn a lefty version of the catchstitch.

The catchstitch is a versatile hand stitch used primarily for hemming but also helpful in anchoring fabric layers and seam allowances within a garment.

    Hooray! Finally some material for us left handers out there. It's so fatiguing to mentally reverse all the right-handed instructions so that it can be done by a left handed sewist. Thank you for the videos
